Removing wrinkles has become an ever-increasing desire these days. With so many technologies developing, it seems like there are many options for non-surgical skin tightening. But, how do we choose? How do we know what under-eye cream is going to work the best for us? Or what type of surgery to get? Or what the repercussions of surgery might be? Fortunately, there is a new procedure out there that’s simple, non-invasive, and gets the job done. Let’s take a closer look at the Forma and Forma Plus procedures that are hitting the skin market by storm.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
The Forma and Forma Plus are non-invasive, non-surgical rejuvenation treatments that tighten the skin. These treatments are able to tighten the skin naturally by stimulating collagen production and increasing the elasticity in your skin.
Because there is no surgery involved, Forma & Forma Plus are a much safer option for those who worry about the effects of surgery. This next-generation technology improves tone and elasticity in the skin, reduces wrinkles, and gives your body the beautiful glow you desire.
How Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Works
Forma uses a new, revolutionary technology called A.C.E., which stands for Acquire, Control, and Extend. This technology uses radio-frequency energy to target problem areas deep into the layers of skin. The area is heated up by this energy and thus stimulates the collagen strands to contract. At the same time, it also stimulates new, healthy collagen to grow. All of this collagen contraction and growth results in a decrease of wrinkles, and an increase in tighter, smoother skin. You’ll feel younger and more confident without having to undergo any surgery at all.
What Areas Does Forma Target?
The great thing about Forma is that it benefits almost anywhere on the body. It can also be used alongside other facial rejuvenation procedures to target more troubled areas.
Some of the most common areas of treatment are the:
- Smile lines
Forma vs. Forma Plus
Forma Plus uses the same radiofrequency energy and A.C.E. technology as Forma, but it focuses more on targeting larger areas of skin. Areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and back would require Forma Plus. It helps to get rid of those flabby, sagging areas, and produce a smoother, more toned look to an area.
What Can I Expect?
Those who undergo Forma or Forma Plus can expect to be renewed with tighter, smoother skin. Because the procedure is non-surgical, they can also expect to have a very small recovery period and almost no pain during and after the procedure at all. At the very most, the procedure will feel like a hot stone massage. While one treatment will make a difference in your skin’s elasticity, a few treatments spaced out at about a week apart will provide the best overall results.
